Why Choose Natural Medicine

Why natural medicineWhen we experience a health condition, whether it is a minor condition such as a cold, or a more serious chronic condition such as diabetes, heart disease, or cancer, we have several choices:

  • We can turn to traditional healthcare
  • We can turn to natural healthcare
  • We can judiciously use a combination of both

This section is here to help educate you on why relying on traditional healthcare to heal you of a chronic condition is not the answer.  

Modern medicine has an important place in our lives, and many of us are alive today because of it.  Emergency trauma is an example of where modern healthcare shines.  For example, a lifesaving cortisone shot in response to a severe allergic reaction, or broken bones requiring x-rays and a cast or splint, organ transplants, treatment for infections and deadly disease... the list goes on.

But when it comes to understanding the root cause of chronic disease, traditional medicine falls far short of the target.  There is a direct link between diet and lifestyle habits, and our emotional and physical health.  But even though the biggest killer diseases of the western world today are completely preventable through diet and lifestyle choices, the healthcare industry does not actively recognize this truth, nor does it provide the public with any education on understanding how to heal chronic conditions through diet.

The top 2 causes of the US healthcare crisis:

#1  What you put in your mouth
#2  How you handle your stress

For most health issues, it is not more complicated than that.  Let's learn more about why the current healthcare system and its reliance of surgery and drugs has significantly contributed to the chronic disease epidemic we are now facing, and about the role the government has played in the corruption of both the food and healthcare industries.

Nutritional "Experts"?

Learn why this pyramid is questionable at best and why Natural Healthcare Practitioners and holistic nutritionists are now blazing a trail to help educate the public on how government standards on food have contributed to the epidemic of chronic disease today.

The corruption of the US food supply
Our highly chemicalized and unnatural food chain is filled with artificial chemicals and pesticide residue that have been conclusively linked to serious health conditions such as autism, cancer, reproductive damage, and neurological damage.  With little regulation, food manufacturers are left to their own devices to openly deceive the public about the unhealthy nature of their products.  Food lobbyists are so powerful that they exert substantial control over the government's stance on food.  ...Read more

The FDA:  Failure on a mass scale
